The large, vibrant flowers of the Garland® Tekla™ Clematis are showstoppers. The striking flowers measure 6 inches wide and have overlapping petals in a dark pinkish-red hue. The flowers first emerge in the early summer and come back again in the fall, making this repeat bloomer a favorite with many gardeners. Even without blooms, this lovely vining plant is a focal point thanks to the bushy vines and bright green foliage.
At 5-feet long, the vines of this Clematis are relatively compact, making this flowering perennial an excellent container plant. Container-grown Garland® Tekla™ Clematis can be featured on a deck, balcony, or small garden without overwhelming the space. The showy flowers attract pollinators like hummingbirds and butterflies, but foraging animals like deer and rabbits do not favor the foliage. The stunning Garland® Tekla™ Clematis is hardy in USDA zones 4 through 9.
Garland® Tekla™ Clematis Care
This Clematis can handle full to part sun, but it tends to do better in part sun. Find a spot that receives morning sun and afternoon shade for best results. This plant has moderate water needs, so give it a drink when the top several inches are dry. Apply a layer of mulch around the base to hold in moisture and protect the roots from warm temperatures. Soil should be slightly alkaline and promote drainage.
Cut back the vines to about 6 inches in the late winter or early spring. Clematis are heavy feeders, so apply a low nitrogen plant food once in the early spring. Follow this up with a balanced fertilizer once a month until the fall.
Garland® Tekla™ Clematis Spacing
This cultivar is a compact Clematis that will get up to 5 feet tall and 2 feet wide. Create a dense wall of flowers and greenery by spacing several Clematis 2 feet apart. This plant is a natural climber, so give it a trellis, or it will help itself to anything nearby. One large pot can accommodate a single plant.
